Episode 171: Questions about prayer and fasting

Episode Highlights

  • The NT assumes that we will fast, but doesn’t give clear direction about when or how. (Matt 6:16-17; 9:14-15)
  • A fast will be most beneficial when we have a clear spiritual purpose in mind.
  • Helpful insights on fasting can be found in Donald Whitney’s book, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life.
  • We shouldn’t expect our family/friends to make our fast easier, but we should courteous to them and tell them what to expect from us on our fasting days.
